Hope you not looking for a boat this year!


Recommended Posts

Boats are in short supply this year.  I got lucky buying one last year.  The boat show in Sylvan beach this year had ONE boat.  crazy.  Everything sold out everywhere.  Guy from Oneida lake marine has no inventory and has people that have a trade in waiting to order boats and he has deposits on the trade ins they are still using.  Lack of production, materials and high demand.  Another product that will need to catch up and will take prob 2-3 years of production to do it.  And haggeling a boat price is out the window.

Been a LONG wait for my UTV as well, early February, and still waiting.  Trailers are a nuisance as well, but at least those you can get.

My buddy tried ordering the same rig I bought back in March, was told Tracker sold out of all 2021 models, he'd have to wait until June to place a 2022 order and should get it in August/September. Oh, and the price went up $3500 for the same boat I bought. I'm glad I got my order in in February!

Sounds like it's going to be a dangerous time on the water.Then next year or two they'll be a bunch of hardly used boats for sale.
Agree....i am sitting and waiting this mess out. I have a 16' fishing boat and can wait a few years for a bigger rig. People are nutz right now....texted a guy in Fairport who had a boat listed on Craigslist Sat morning....asked if the boat had been in the water this year, and if I came up to see it with cash can we launch and take for a ride? He responded with....it's sold and the guy is bringing me the Money Monday when he first sees it and picks it up. WtF are people crazy??? Had a buddy buy a boat without even starting it.....ended up dumping over. 1000 into to get it running correctly. It just boggles my mind the crap people do cause of Covid.

Just bought my wife new Hyundai Palisade....you take what they give you unless you wanna place an order and wait months. And the trade in value of her vehicle was through the roof. Unreal how things are right now.

My buddy bought a pair of brutforce quads and trailer for 10k. The guy said him and his son wanted to go riding,they both got motion sickness riding around the neighborhood. Total run times 30 minutes lol

I cashed in on the first gun craze when obama got elected,dumped what i didn't want.Then scored what i wanted a few years later.Some people just get nuts at the wrong time.

Safe boating everyone!!!!

Crazy times,  my boats still in my garage and I'm considering selling one of my wheelers 
Cash out now before the madness ends.

I take this as a good sign for me. I've been wanting a cheaper used boat for a few years now. Something that might not last that long but would help me gauge if I really wanted to go deeper in the wallet. With a pool and a camp up north I'm not sure how much time I'd get out of it, but I'd love to just go out with the fam and also go out and fish. I looked pretty hard last year and anything even remotely decent was gone by the time I called the owner.
